THE POLICE COMMISSION.
What tbe Poller of the Board la to Be. The future policy of the Board of Police Commissioners is beginning to show itself. At the meeting yesterday afternoon the lines between the factions stood out in very bold relief, and a num ber of incidents took place which served to indicate that the present harmony will not last very long. It was well known in the course of the week that Commissioners Lindley, Knox and Dex ter had been gathered together at various times and places, and the fine hand of the caucus appeared in a variety of things which happened in the meeting yes terday. Three members of the Council were in the room when the meeting was called to order, Messrs. Brown, Shafer and Mc- Lean. It presently appeared that each one of the three had some reason for be ing there, and none of them went away disappointed. The Police Commissioners, it will be remembered, are appointed by the Council,and may be removed with out warning or cause at any time by thathody. With the ghost of one re cently decapitated member still wander ing about tbe precincts of the Mayor's office, the remaining Commissioners would naturally not be very reckless about refusing to obey the wishes of Council nen. C. C. Stephens, the attorney, came into the room before the meeting, and asked to be beard on behalf of Officer Hinckle, who had been removed for as sisting Fred Smith in a fan-tan raid. If the Commission had not time to hear him, he wished that they would at least listen to the statement of the man him self and Constable Smith, and consult the law on the matter of refusing to as sist a constable making an arrest. When this matter was reached in the course of the proceedings, it was decided not to hear Mr. Stephens nor any one else, nor to hear any discussion of tbe matter. A petition was read by the Secretary from Marcus Goldsmith, asking for a saloon license for the corner of Temple Street and Victor avenue. A report from the Chief in the matter set forth the fact that the petition contained the names of people who were not property owners nor residents in the block. A letter was read from Mrs. L. James, protesting against the .location of any saloon near her property. The petition was denied and the license not granted. Tbe Chief reported unfavorably on the project to make one of the street inspec- 1 tors a special police officer, and the peti- 1 tion for the appointment was denied. Captain Harris reported that Sergeant Cox tiad complained of the saloon kept by one Brown, a colored man, at the cor ner of Marchessault and New High 1 streets, tbat it was a disorderly place. 1 Brown bad been arrested and was now 1 awaiting trial under the State law. The Board decided to close Mr. Brown up, and a permit will be denied to him after ] the end of this month. Tbe City Attorney reported on the matter of the petition of W. W. Watson, 1 to which forged names had been signed, 1 that nothing could be done about it. 1 The Board decided to present it to the - District Attorney, and ask him to see ( whether there was any violation of the : State law. The Bequest of the. Park Commission- ' era for tbe appointment of one Spring, 1 for special policeman for West Lake 1 Park, was referred to the Chief. M. Sheflet, of SO4 North Main, pre- 1 sented a written communication to the efiect that a few nights ago he hoard two men talking in front of his store about the location of the safe. They lighted matches and looked into the windows, i He came up to them and they showed i him patrol stars. He blew his police ; whistle and found three policemen to gether at the corner, a little way off. They refused to pay any attention to 1 what he told them and would not let ] him blow his whistle again. He went ■ round to the Station the next day and | learned tbat Officer Bracewell was one i of the men. The Chief gave it as his opinion that the conduct of tbe officers, if as narrated by Mr. Sheflet, was very suspicious. It was ordered that Bracewell be suspended until the Chief should investigate and make a report on the matter. The Pound Keeper sent in a commun ication asking that he be heard for five minutes. He was ordered to put what he had to say in i writing, and a petition was pres- i entry read from him, asking that a i special officer be appointed as a deputy to him who should have authority to i take charge of stray animals. A number of applications were read : from various people, ex-officers and i others, asking for places on the force, i Among these was one from W. G. Hus- : ton,who was vouched for by Councilman Shafer. Councilman Shafer happened to be present. All the other applications were tossed aside, but that of Mr. Huston went throngh unanimously and without any disagreeable delay. Mrs. H. A. Watson, the matron of the Girls' Home, asked to be made police matron. The petition was laid over until the Finance Committee of the Council should act upon it. Mr. Knox said that Councilman Mc- Lain wrs waiting for some business in which he was interested to be transacted, and suggested that the matter of tbe granting of a saloon license to Stuhr & Dillman, for 148 South Main street, be considered immediately. The petition was then read, together with a protest signed by Bishop Mora and a number of other residents of tbe neighborhood, stating that there were already four sa loons in that block, and begging that it be not granted. Mr. Bilderrain moved that the protest be filed, and that ended the usefulness of that document. It is the regular rule of the Board that all saloon licenses shall be held over for one week while the Chief investigates. Councilman McLain was present, Com missioner Lindley moved that the rules be suspended and the license instantly granted. The other commis sioners fairly fell over one another to pass the motion. Mayor Hazard, who is not appointed by the Council, stood out against tbe suspension of the rales for the special benefit of one of the members. Commissioner Dexter voted with him on that part of the question, but voted aye on the proposition to create a new saloon. Mr. McLain asked to say a word in the course of the discussion, but got snubbed by the Mayor.who was not in a truckling frame of mind. At the end of the meet ing a letter was found on the Mayor's desk from Tom Keefe, asserting that Dillman bad bilked him out of a good deal in getting him to fit up a saloon, which he refused afterwards to occupy. Mr. Lindley suggested very flippantly that Mr. Dillman be requested to pay his bills, but nothing further was said or done in the matter of the license. The following saloon business was then transacted: License granted to B. F. McCarthy, 143 South Spring, in place of Fancherj H. Olivier changed to A. Olivier; William Bandle transferred to Paul Mitson; GanterA Frieze to William Gunther; Mrs. 1L A. Frapper to Louie THB LOS ANGELES DAILY HERALD: THURSDAY MORNING, APRIL 25, 1889 t| Le Grand: Chisholm & McDonald to James McDonald; Calvin & Oobnrn to John Neitler; Charles Appledown to Peter W. Miller. A number of applications for transfers and new licenses were laid over for one week to allow tbe Chief to investigate. The Chief said that he was doing his best to prevent soliciting on the part of the women of ill-fame in the city, and also to make them move out of the houses which they occupy on Alameda and New High streets, which have their windows directly over the sidewalk. The Board endorsed this policy by vote. The Chief reported that he had ap pointed four men on the regular force. One of them was a special, E. Harvey. The others had not been on the force at all. They were I. W. Davis, Collins and Doraey. The Mayor appeared to be much surprised at these appointments, and asked by what authority they were made. Mr. Burns remarked very com* posedly that it was "with the concur rence of a majority of the members of the Commission." Mr. Hazard objected very decidedly to this way of doing business. He con sidered Davis as unfit for a place on the force. Charges had been brought against him which he had refused to meet, and had resigned from the force. There were reasons mentioned by the Mayor and by other members of the Commission why neither Dorsey nor Collins should be appointed. They are confirmed by the Board, however, al though Mr. Davis will be required to meet any charges which may be brought against him. The new coalition of Knox, Lindley and Dexter voted solidly to gether. Mr. Lindley then offered some resolu tions stating that it was the sense of tbe Commissioner that there were enough saloons in tbe city, and that the number, which is now about 230, should not be increased. The resolutions also set forth that the Chief Bhall exert himself to close up all tbe disreputable places. Mayor Hazard could not see the point of tbe resolutions, nor why they should be passed, inasmuch as that bad been the policy of the Commission from the first. He thought there was an inferred slur on the action of the Board in the past. After some rather lively discussion, in the midst of which tbe Mayor reminded Mr. Lindley tbat he had himself moved to grant a new license that afternoon, the resolutions were laid over for one week. Captain Knox said that he had read an insinuation in the Herald to the effect that the police authorities were conniv ing at Chinese gambling. He wanted to have the Commission go on record. He offered a resolution calling for the com plete suppression of both white and Chi nese gambling. It was laid over for one week. Mr. Dexter offered a resolution to the effect that any officer who took money for police services should be forthwith suspended. This was also laid over. Mr. Dexter presented the petition of Pat Follis, who he said was a needy man who deserved well of the Commission. There was no vacancy for Mr. Follis. The Mayor referred to the fact that peo ple were in tbe habit of signing peti tions, and then privately stating to him that they did not mean anything by it. It was ordered therefore that all applica tions be made part of tbe record, and preserved for reference. By special order the Chief was allowed to appoint men to fill vacancies on tbe force, not using the names of those on the special list, unless, in his judgment, they were the most deserving of appoint ment. The Board then adjourned. The l.llirurv Director*. The Library Directors met yesterday morning, President O, A. Dobinson in the chair, and Messrs. Davies, Jones, Howard and Hanchette present. Mr. Dobinson, on behalf of the com mittee to secure French works, reported progress. The Committee on Insurance was instructed to renew the policy when it expires. It was reported that the Council had instructed the City Clerk to advertise for bids for furnishing the Library rooms, and the members of the Board decided to call the attention of as many furniture builders to the matter as possible. A bill of Messrs. Col well & Co., for the return of money paid for books which had been stolen from the Library was disallowed. The Librarian, Miss Kelso, reported that she had been able to obtain lower figures from a local firm for furnishing magazines and papers than she could obtain in the East, and she was instructed to give the local firm the order. It was decided to increase the working room of the Librarian in the present quarters, and Messrs. Davies and Han chette were appointed as a committee to attend to the matter. On motion of Director Davies, the Librarian was instructed to transact no business on Sundays, and the Board ad journed until next Wednesday. Struck by Steam. The case of Mrs. Amelia Johnson against Wilson et al., the proprietors of the Los Angeles steam laundry, to re cover $5,000 damages for injuries, was on trial before Judge Wade yesterday, Mrs. Johnson alleged in her complaint the morning of August 16th last, Bhe was going to work at the laundry, and, while going along by the side of the building, a large volume of steam and water came out of a pipe and knocked her down. She was injured so that she was taken home and prematurely gave birth to a child. She was sick for two weeks, and allegod that her injuries were permanent. The trial will probably be concluded to-day. Cood Hem (or the Public. The cheapest place in the United States to live. The St..
